We know the universal truth that we resemble our parents because of our genes but having the same wrinkles as they had is not genetic at all. According to Dr. Jeanine B. Downie, dermatologist at the American board of Dermatology recently revealed the very same.
Dr. Downie believes that the majority of skin damages come from external sources like drinking less water, increased exposure to sun, smoking and of course stress.
Dr. Downing advises with a few tips in order to minimize skin ageing. As per a recent study conducted by the Skin Cancer Foundation, about 40% of adult Americans confessed the fact that they did not use sunscreen when they ventured out in the sun.
Dr. Downing advises not to do so. She says that irrespective of whether it’s a sunny day or a rainy day and irrespective of the ethnicity everyone should use a sunscreen of at least SPF 15 whenever they go out to minimize the effects of skin aging.
Another thing she advises to do is to use topical antioxidants. With a background of working with the manufacturing of Revaléskin she advises to get rid of all that by getting a potent antioxidant massage each day and then advises the application of the sunscreen after that on top of the antioxidant.
